Make A Move

Brief Description of Organisation

Make a Move is not a dance company…but we do make people dance. Creative movement, music, therapeutic dance and talking therapy are all used in innovative combinations to encourage healing of mind and body. We inspire laughter, fun and happiness. But it is serious stuff – we improve people’s mental health.

Full Description of Organisation

Make a Move is not a dance company…but we do make people dance.


Creative movement, music, therapeutic dance and talking therapy are all used in innovative combinations to encourage healing of mind and body. We inspire laughter, fun and happiness. But it is serious stuff – we improve people’s mental health.


We work with older people, young adults with learning disabilities, mothers with postnatal depression and children in schools.

Working with Children

Make a Move is very proud of the work it does with children. We cultivate the learning independence and attainment of severely disadvantaged primary school pupils across South Bristol and Bath and North East Somerset.

Working with Mums

Make a Move runs regular programmes in and around Bath and North East Somerset, working with mothers with low mood and perinatal depression. The Moving On Up! programme offers music, movement and therapeutic talking sessions to help mothers recover.

Working with Older people

Make a Move is a dementia-friendly charity, working with older people and their carers to improve vitality, self-expression, relaxation, alertness, self-esteem and social connection and alleviate anxiety.

Working with Learning Disabilities

We work with other charities to improve employment and volunteering opportunities for young adults with learning disabilities by helping to improve their social skills and, consequently, their social lives.
